Here is the thread for your not so pretty food. Whether it was lovely, but butt ugly or a total disaster. Do share.



This is what happens when you semi defrost the dumplings from tofurkey feast freeze them again and expect them to cook like food should cook.

yally, did you eat the dumplings? How did they taste?

I should have taken a picture of the pierogies I cooked yesterday. I was really surprised that they came out of the package with severe freezer burn. I should have boiled them but I baked them instead. Mistake. They came out like leather. I'm sure it was due to the freezer burn; that does not normally happen with pierogies.

funny you should start this! There is a "super healthy dip" on fatfreevegan blog that is excellent tasting, but looks like brown animal excrement! It's blackbeans, spinach, salsa and cumin.....not pretty at all. Was going to take it to a party, but left it here,and made guac instead!

And then take anything made with green lentils, and it'll turn into brown food....not pleasant to look at, but healthy,and still usually tastes good

I tasted it, it tasted mostly like wet flour so into the bin it went

I think they'd have been a bit nice if they weren't a total mess.

So it tasted like it looked? Maybe there is something to food pictures of food that looks scrumptious. Anyone got food pics that looked horrible but tasted great? I have had a few meals that would qualify, but I never bothered to snap a pic. I figured no one would want to look at it. But since there is interest in this thread, maybe we have some masochists around here.

I bought these frozen thai veggie gyoza dumplings the other day and when I got home it was late and I forgot to put them in the fridge. I noticed the next morning and put them in the fridge and then had them at night that day and they seemed fine lol.

I had a ton of pictures to contribute, but I deleted so many because they were so bad. I'll keep them from now on and try to track down old non-porn food

yally, that's a shame, but an adventure at least.

I'm not sure if I have pictures, but I've made lots of things that look weird but taste good. Some smoothies end up looking slightly like vomit, for instance. When I've made seitan a couple of times, it looks just like a brain, grey matter and all. I'll have to have my camera at the ready next time.
